"After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb.

Nelson Mandela

A crew from the Graham County Land Company of Robbinsville, NC (photo), has begun repairs to a section of the CCT and Potomac Heritage Trail in Great Falls Park.  The worst section (see photo) was washed out over several storms and has been virtually impassable since 2011.  Repairs will also restore about 900 feet of damaged trail.   Congrats to Don Briggs of NPS and Brent O'Neill of Great Falls Park for securing funding to fill in this missing link.
